Simonsig Auction Reserve Pinotage 2007

Winemaking Notes A twelve year old bush vine vineyard planted on a shale soil produced these excellent quality grapes. Picked at the end of January at 27 &degB with high natural acidity. Two days of cold soak were followed by a very active 3 day fermentation at 26 – 27 &degC. Wood maturation lasted 25 months in 100% new French (77%) and American (23%) oak before the Pinotage was bottled exclusively for the Auction. Tasting Notes Dark, brooding black berry fruit, infused with perfumed, sweet vanilla pod aromas. Rich, complex plum and sour cherry flavours intertwine with smooth ripe tannins. A boldly structured, full bodied Pinotage from an outstanding vintage indicates excellent maturation potential.
